It's very possible that the drumhead is synthetic, in which case the
henna won't stain it. They're making very realistic looking, feeling,
and sounding skins now that are not what they appear to be.
If the drum is Egyptian though (i'm assuming it's a doumbek?) it may
have a Nile Sturgeon head- fishskin. I'm not sure if fishskin would
stain well or not. No reason for it not to, bot you never know.

: I hennaed my friend's drum last Wednesday. It has a very thin skin
: that looks like parchment. I couldn't tell you what type it is,
: guessing goatskin. Anyways, when I took off a little henna paste,
: there's no stain underneath, just a watermark. Could the skin on
: this drum be too thin? I've been keeping the drum in my garage,
: where it's warm and humid (I'm in Florida)
